On 17 October 2018, the trade magazine Textilwirtschaft (dfv Mediengruppe) published the ranking list of the 100 largest European fashion brand suppliers. Luna Journal shows the top ten largest fashion groups in Europe.

The published ranking shows that the Spanish Inditex Group, which also includes the Zara brand, is the largest fashion group in Europe. Second place went to the sports goods group Adidas, which has promoted the Swedish company H&M to third place. The top ten companies in the fashion industry increased their sales last year from around 12 billion euros to a total of around 131 billion euros.
